Product Description

Product Description

Pythagoras, one of the greatest philosophers of ancient
Europe, was the son of Mnesarchus,an engraver. He was
born about the year 580 B.C.,either at Samos, an island in the
Aegean Sea, or, as some say, at Sidon in Phoenicia. Very little
is known of his early life, beyond
the fact that he won prizes for feats of agility at the Olympic Games. Having
attained manhood and feeling dissatisfied with the
amount of knowledge to be gained at home, he left his
native land and spent many years in travel, visiting in
turn most of the great centers of Learning.
History narrates that his pilgrimage in search of wisdom extended
to Egypt, Hindostan, Persia, Crete and Palestine, and
that he gathered from each country fresh stores of information,
and succeeded in becoming well acquainted
with the Esoteric Wisdom as well as with the popular
exoteric knowledge of each.
The school of Pythagoras has several peculiar characteristics.
Every new member was obliged to pass a period
of five years of contemplation in perfect silence the
members held everything in common, and rejected animal
food they were believers in the doctrine of metempsychosis,
and were inspired with an ardent and implicit
faith in their founder and teacher.
No person was permitted to commit to writing any tenet, or
secret doctrine, and, so far as is known, no
pupil ever broke the rule until after his death
and the dispersion of the school.
The most striking peculiarities of his doctrines are dependent
on the mathematical conceptions, numerical
ideas and impersonations upon which his philosophy
was founded.

About the Author

William Wynn Westcott was a British esotericist, coroner, ceremonial magician, and Freemason. He was born in Leamington, Warwickshire, England.A doctor of medicine by profession, he became active in Freemasonry in 1871, becoming Master of his home Lodge in 1874 and later also of the prestigious Quatuor Coronati research lodge, as well as achieving other Masonic distinctions.He studied the Kabbalah and by 1880 became active in the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia before co-founding the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn with Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers and William Robert Woodman in 1887, using the motto V.H. Frater Sapere Aude. By then he was also active in the Theosophical Society. He devised and organized the Golden Dawn's rituals with Mathers and William Robert Woodman, who preceded him as Supreme Magus of the S.R.I.A. and like Westcott was one of the foremost exponents of Hermeticism of the time. In 1896, he abandoned public involvement with the Golden Dawn due to pressure regarding his job as a Crown Coroner, with which it was seen as an unseemly association. He continued to head the S.R.I.A. and later was involved with the Golden Dawn breakaway Stella Matutina.He retired as a coroner after 1910, emigrated to South Africa in 1918, and died in Durban in 1925.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Kindle download 27 July 2011
By Dodwell
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this to my Kindle, only to be confronted with a rag bag collection of fonts, split sentences and misplaced paragraphs, making the whole work a real pain to "read"

A good book, but 0 for effort in formatting!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor download from Kindle 21 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a disaster! This looked a snip at the download of 0.77 pence but what a disappointment. Useless mish-mash of fonts and split sentences. Content is fascinating and has prompted me to look at buying the printed book but I warn you that reading this on your Kindle will be a great disappointment. I downloaded to my PC since I also have a Kindle account for that too and sorry lads and lassies, it's not very good on a large screen. Be warned...it's cheap enough to get a flavour. I suggest you look inside the book on the Amazon site to get a better insight.
